Do you ever lose track of time when you are crafting?
It is so easy to do.
Sometimes I am crocheting with friends when suddenly we are surprised, "Is that the time already?" It is reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch, "That wasn't five minutes just now!" except it feels like five minutes when it has actually been three hours!
At other times, I will have a number of things on the go at once; for example, getting on with some sewing while I am waiting for crochet to dry on the blocking board and bibs and bobs of housework in between. When I get tired from sewing (usually mending), I might take a mid-project break on the couch with a cuppa, little snooze and then pick up the crochet laying nearby. Meanwhile, I still haven't put the sewing machine away or the project which is still there because I was too tired at the time to pack up and genuinely intended to return to finish it but forgot when I woke up!
Often I will lose myself in my activities and suddenly realise it is time to leave for an appointment etc. The only answer is to drop everything immediately and get out the door!
As I rush out the room grabbing a hijacked denim jacket, I look behind me to see a path of destruction and the trail of crochet mess!
There's the ironing board left out with the iron still plugged in (but not switched on!). The blocking board is leaning against an empty clothes airer; the couch is in the middle of the room; the computer is still on; my goodness! The kitchen table has got scattered projects and yarn and a needle which must go back into the pin cushion before I really walk out …wherever the pincushion is … (deep breath) …ah, on my desk!
Now you get the idea of what I leave behind when I dash out the door!
Sorry, no photos, I was in too much of a hurry!
